Founded in '80 by Algy Ward, a former member of The Damned, Tank was part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement.
Their initial run was from "82, when they unfurled "Filth Hounds Of Hades," to '89 when the group disbanded, largely because they had failed to create an album with the empirical power of their debut.
And that might have been the end of story, if not for Ward who resurrected the band in the late '90's. This iteration came to a crossroads in '08 when Ward left.
Rather than tanking, guitarists Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans decided to carry on as Tank releasing '10's "War Machine" and '12's "War Nation."
That was all well and good until '13 when Ward decided to launch his own version of Tank with former Rainbow singer Doogie White.
So now, the world was blessed with two versions of a long forgotten Metal band.
'13's "Breath Of The Pit" was the initial offering from Ward/White.
In '15, the Tucker/Evans edition released "Valley Of Tears" while Ward's crew promised an album titled "Sturmpanzer" (named after a German armored infantry support gun based on the Panzer IV tank chassis).
